    Well...

    My amazing partner surprised me with a new guitar!

    I've never really 'got' the custom shop thing before...but this silly thing couldn't be more perfect for me.

    It seems your partner felt you were "ready" for the Fender Custom Shop!
    Congrats!

    Nice. I was one of the ones who always said I don’t see why people buy relic’d custom shop guitars...until I played one. Now I really want one.

    Wow it’s stunning. I LOVE the color combo with the tort guard and the sea foam green finish + the black humbucker ring.
    I had a CS strat that was almost the same: sea foam over sunburst, heavy relic, except mine had a white guard.
    Congrats and enjoy playing music on this beautiful instrument!

    Maybe next year your partner could send it off to be refinished.

    I sure love the colour, the way the relicing was done and the tortoise shell pick guard really adds that vintage vibe.

    The Strat looks like George Harrisons Strat before he painted it and named it Rocky.

    Congrats it looks fantastic! I've been eyeing the ocean turquoise version on Reverb (this is sea foam right?)...
    Gorgeous...
    I wonder if a new Cunife would be a drop-in replacement on that...
